25th August: Derrick Watts is 'commissioned as Verger for St. Nicholas Church

25th August 2019: Jane Nursey commissioned Derrick Watts as Verger to St. Nicholas Church

Jane introduced Derrick to the Congregation and explained the role he would be taking on. He has already been doing a fantastic job, following the resignation and subsequent death of our late beloved David Webster.

      

The cassock has been bought with money donated by the late Ted Booty's family. This was from donations that were given to the Church when Ted and Gwen celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary. Ted's widow, Gwen, assisted Derrick in puttting on his new attire, and Derrick panted a 'thank you kiss' on Gwen's cheek, watched by her daughter.

   

Revd. Jane Nursey presented Derrick with his verge, before prayers were said for God's blessing on Derrick's future ministry as Verger for St. Nicholas Church. Following the final hymn and blessing, Derrick led Revd. Jane in the retiring procession.

Derrick will 'verge' at all future funerals, weddings and important services..
